Liverpool chairman speaks out on Jurgen Klopp’s future amid Juventus interest

Posted on

Liverpool chairman Tom Werner is not concerned about interest in manager Jurgen Klopp.

The Reds boss has been linked with the Juventus job in recent weeks after guiding his side to a second successive Champions League final.

Liverpool also missed out on the Premier League title by a point with Klopp desperate to end an excellent campaign with a trophy when his side take on Tottenham in Madrid on Saturday.

Klopp signed a six-year contract extension in 2016 to keep him at Anfield until 2022.

There has been speculation he will sign a new deal if the Reds win in Madrid and claim their sixth European Cup success.

Werner insists Liverpool have the situation under control and would like Klopp to remain at the helm for years to come.

“We don’t really want to discuss his situation publicly, especially so close to the final,” Werner told the Liverpool Echo.

“But I think you know that we think the world of him. We have already extended his contract once.

“All I can say is that it’s obviously important that he stays for as long as he likes. We believe that he’s committed to Liverpool.”
